These are the somewhat random and often scattered thoughts of the Marr family members about almost anything - what we are currently doing on the web, recent outings (as distinct from being 'let out'), any interesting stoushes we have had or are trying to have with any one or thing that annoys us, things happening around us, etc. etc.

Progress can make you board stiff ........
Starting to look like a real house, now. Nearly all windows are in, and most of the external boards have been fitted (unpainted, as yet). The builders broke one of the main windows (lounge) during installation, but that has been fixed. We are installing double-glazed windows and only the external pane was broken, so the break didn't cause any breach that would allow the weather in - which was great given the storms and rain we've had over the past few weeks.
Inside, the bath & shower base have been delivered and all internal plumbing appears in place. The meter box has been cut in, and the electrician should be starting the wiring and placement of lights, power-points and switches this week. We've provided him with wiring diagrams for the data outlets (3), additional lights (down lights) and the projector/theatre sound system. We've purchased the ceiling fans for the three bedrooms and the ceiling mount for the projector.
